We live in interesting times. Everything is hard and nothing is easy.
Or is that really true?
We are definitely going through transformative times, a cultural revolution is on the way. Our old ways of seeing are no longer working. A new holistic world view is emerging from science and mysticism. It's permeating every corner of society.
So maybe we are not paying attention when we are in the flow and things seem effortless, instead we concentrate on trying to force our way through - and not aligning with the creative forces of the cosmos.
Life is a gift. We have nothing to prove. We have no one to blame. Our outer world is a reflection of our inner world, and it is impossible to make a mistake or do anything wrong. Even when life is messy - you are not doing anything wrong. We are not here to be perfect. Whenever we make mistakes it forces us to look within. It makes us ask bigger questions which always yields pearls of wisdom, if we let it. We become bigger people, more loving, compassionate, and certainly wiser.
So why not quit beating ourselves up for what we are not doing right and start concentrating on the things that we are doing right.
So how do we know when what we are doing is the right thing?
By the way we feel.
Take a nap! (It actually helps.) If it seems like hard work, or you feel trapped or stuck, then you are not aligned with the cosmic flow. If your actions feel joyful, if it makes you smile, if you breathe more easily then you are moving in the right direction. If your actions feel heavy, painful, difficult, then you are going against the flow. We live in a loving Universe. It's learning to think with our heart, and not necessarily with our head, that connects us with our feelings. Learning the value of paying attention when things feel good and right, then using the memory of those feelings to shift gears when times are tough may actually be the key to going with the cosmic flow.
